Today I told my boys and girls the story of Matthew (the tax collector) who invited his friends over to eat and meet his new friend, Jesus. I told the story in my own words several times as we did various activities. After awhile, I started the story again...a little boy got real close to me and said, "And his friends didn't know JESUS?"
"That's right," I said. "He wanted to tell them about Jesus. He wanted them to know that Jesus loved them.

Tell about Jesus!
